perfection......each item of food that was ordered was done perfectly. Tender, excellent tastes combined for a very enjoyable dinner. Dessert was the soufflé......also prepared perfectly.

You can't go wrong...….prices are what you might expect in Beaver Creek and a fine dining restaurant

Everything was great, wonderful, friendly from valet to greeting to waiter to service people! And our food was
Absolutely Fabulous.... always love seeing Matt your amazing manager and Kathy Morrow is the icing on our cake!!

We were expecting a better price because it was restaurant week and we thought 2019 would be part of our meal pricing, but you were just offering a bottle of Prosecco at that price... otherwise, our experience was wonderful...

Service was over the top fantastic, food was more than memorable and the prices were reasonable when compared to what we feel are "lesser" restaurants at the vary base of the mountain. One shining example of service was when the server (Paul) noticed my wife's reaction to the first sip of wine they recommended. While it wasn't bad, he could tell she wasn't in love with it. Almost instantaneously he brought a taste of another option which she much preferred. They promptly comped the first glass, left it on the table for consumption if desired, then quickly arrived with a glass of the second option. Additionally, my wife and I love multi-hour dining experiences, and never once did we feel rushed. We just can't say enough about our experience.

We went for our 20th anniversary. This is one of our favorite restaurants but this experience was extra special. The menus were printed with our names and “Happy Anniversary”. It was a really special touch.

The piano bar area is wonderful, and Kathy (pianist) is exemplary. She knew every requested song, has a wonderful voice, and makes everyone in the area feel like family. Outstanding menu, fresh food, service, and all made our evening entirely memorable. Pricey, for special occasions for most people. Will repeat.

Always a great experience.

The best meal of our trip. Hostess accommodates our seating preference. Generous cocktails. Our waiter led us in the right direction. Then he brought out the Pastry Chef to explain the incredible unique dessert special. A perfect way to end the meal. Can't wait to go back on our next trip!

Absolutely wonderful menu items with perfect presentation and eclectic selection. Our servers were attentive for the most part. It was slightly disappointing that “regular” patrons were given a little extra attention than we were afforded. I suppose we’ll gladly have to visit more to receive the similar service. On the whole the evening was wonderful and the food exceptional.

Oh, the bread and honey butter were fabulous to start. There were three of us. We ordered the peach/mushroom appetizer to start - heavenly and unusual - enough for three. For mains, we ordered halibut, dover sole and elk from NZ. Both fish dishes were excellent. Our friend thought the elk was a bit dry but pretty good. Dessert - the semifreddo - was a little bland. The small scoop of sorbet that accompanied was delicious. This was our first time dining at Splendido. Besides the excellent food, we were looking forward to the jazz piano. He was very good but was too loud for conversation, as we were about 15 feet away. Highly recommend, but ask for a table farther from the music if you want to talk.

The meal, in particular the lamb chops, was delicious, compliments to the chef. I tried one of the specialty cocktails before dinner - a smoky mescal based drink - and it was amazing, so compliments to the bartender too. Our waiter was attentive enough and basically efficient, but seemed to be just going through the motions. Splendido is our hands down favorite for date night in Beaver Creek, we highly recommend it.

Nice restaurant with interesting menu but overall not exemplary as we expected. The service was spotty with a waiter mostly not attentive. Restaurants that present a special style include folding napkins during time away from the table, waiters having a routine that visits the table, and offering a sommelier (extensive wine list but no support). In summary, nice environment but mostly average which is unfortunate. Doubt we will return.

We always dine at Splendido when in the Vail Valley. We celebrated our anniversary and it was nice that the menus had Happy Anniversary printed at the top.

Our server was very helpful with selections and wine selection. The menu is lacking shareable apps. The soups and salads are delicious but would be nice to have something the table could share. I remember when they offered a seafood tower for an app and it was wonderful.

We both had fish which was delicious and the lemon sorbet dessert was great.

We have been dining here for many years and just believe it has dropped a notch. Maybe a facelift on the facility/ furnishings would help along with a more attentive staff upon entering the lobby.

oysters and foes gras were unbelievable! Snapper really good too (would have left off the skin up presentation however); Halibut was cooked ok, but bland; pork tenderloin was good but not outstanding, considering all the things one could do with that dish; deserts were incredible ! Soufflé!
too expensive! eaten there several times; this was not the best, but plan to be back in a few weeks.
